Our Work


School Improvement

Over 5 million children across the country attend failing schools. We work to change that. We are a transformative leader in education with a track record of working with school districts and school boards to turn multiple F-rated schools into A-rated schools. The communities we serve often benefit from our wrap-around services designed to support our families. PLA is a responsive and active force in improving the lives of children and strengthening local communities.


Summer Advantage USA

Summer Advantage USA is our nationally recognized program designed to help scholars close the achievement gap by preventing summer learning loss and accelerating academic gains. Summer Advantage has been recognized by the White House for delivering results by providing elementary and middle school students in low–performing school districts with research-based summer learning programs focused on academic success.
